Having been highly anticipated at its launch, this innovative contemporary retirement development is unique in the area, having been designed to ensure its residents are fully supported, yet can easily maintain their links with the local community and continue to play an active role in society. The extra care approach is flexible to the individual needs of each resident, which means that a number of bespoke packages are available, so where more attentive support is necessary, it is available, and where minimal care needs are required, residents are free to enjoy their independence and the many facilities on offer. The wide-ranging facilities are plentiful and include an on-site gym, health centre, therapy room, hair salon, bistro/bar and convenience shop, affording a wonderfully sociable environment which ensures one never feels isolated, whilst also worthy of particular emphasis is the convenience of the location, with the wider Buckshaw Village development offering a host of shops and amenities, as well as being very well located for access to the M6, M61 and M55 motorways, ensuring major commercial centres such as Preston, Bolton and Manchester are easily accessible, with the nearby train station similarly convenient for those who wish to travel via rail. The apartment is serviced by a secure entry system and a lift, which is well appreciated by residents. This immaculately presented one bed apartment circa 474 square feet, enjoys an enviable position with a delightful aspect, which can be enjoyed via the lovely ‘Juliet’ balcony within the lounge. Entering via the reception hallway with its built-in storage cupboards and continuing through into the superb 19’ open plan living area, it is clear to see the home has been well taken care of and has a well thought out floor plan, to suit the needs of the resident. Leading off the lounge is the kitchen which is fitted with a range of beech-effect wall and base units with contrasting laminate work surfaces, and comes equipped with a number of integrated appliances, including electric oven, halogen hob with extractor canopy, fridge/freezer and washing machine/dryer. The 12' bedroom is full of light and has ample storage space, the accommodation is completed by a wet room-style shower room, which comprises WC, pedestal wash hand basin and walk-in shower. Externally, the exclusive gated development is very secure and private, with communal landscaped grounds which are beautifully tended, ensuring residents and visitors can enjoy a relaxing stroll or a bite to eat in the sunshine, or perhaps a game of bowls on the private on-site bowling green. There is also plenty of parking available. Available with the benefit of no onward chain.
